I believe Tool opened up for Fishbone, Rollins Band, and Helmet when they started off.

And the Melvin's

Wiki says otherwise. 50 support shows on their first tour.


They joined up with Smashing Pumpkins AFTER their first tour. Wiki here.

ETA:

7+ months as headliner before joining SP. Only reason I knew they started out headlining was because I was at the Feb '96 show where they solidified their set list.

I left 2 tickets at will-call for a couple of friends so they could join us when they got bailed out of jail. Ended up getting invited to the afterparty. I've got a signed cigar case from backstage smokin' with Shirley Manson and Butch Vig. Good times.

So what bands have never been an opener?

What bands started off their music careers as headliners?


Audioslave (sum < parts)
Them Crooked Vultures

Really, that's about the only way it happens, when you get super groups of established stars.
